Daniel Crane, Head Chef
Chef Dan was inspired at a young age. His mother is an adventurous home cook who passed down her family recipes and some of those dishes can be seen on the menu. At the age of 16, Chef Dan got his first job as a dishwasher. This is where he started to learn and appreciate how kitchens run. Chef Dan worked for a number of years in Vancouver at the Cactus Club and Arbutus Club; he even did two seasons on the move in a luxury dining car. It was at the Arbutus Club where he realized his passion for cooking and that he wanted to be a chef for the rest of his life.
Chef Dan started as a first cook at Jamie’s. He quickly excelled and was promoted to Sous Chef, during which time he was doing all the new menu creation. Entering into his first year as Head Chef at Jamie’s, Chef Dan is excited to be able to use his creativity with the abundance of fresh BC vegetables, fruit, local shellfish, and seafood.
We have a great connection with the local community and we strive to meet their expectations and cater to them.
